Commitment

 

Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun’s rays do not burn until brought to a focus.

Alexander Graham Bell

Wherever you go, go with all your heart.

Confucius

When a child has a dream and a parent says, “It’s not financially feasible; you can’t make a living at that; don’t do it,” we say to the child, run away from home… You must follow your dream. You will never be joyful if you don’t. Your dream may change, but you’ve got to stay after your dreams. You have to.

Abraham-Hicks, from the workshop: Asheville, NC on May 1, 2005

Faith is the daring of the soul to go farther than it can see.

William Newton Clark (1686-1737) American Theologian

As long as we are persistence in our pursuit of our deepest destiny, we will continue to grow. We cannot choose the day or time when we will fully bloom. It happens in its own time.

Denis Waitley

No man can hope to accomplish anything great in this world until he throws his whole soul, flings the force of his whole life, into it. It is not enough simply to have a general desire to accomplish something. There is but one way to do that; and that is, to try to be somebody with all the concentrated energy we can muster.

Orison Swett Marden (1850-1924) American Editor and Speaker

Wherever you go, go with all your heart.

Confucius

Invest in everything, attach to nothing.

Rhonda Britten

I had rather do and not promise than promise and not do.

Arthur Warwick

He did each single thing as if he did nothing else.

Charles Dickens

Well, every man has a religion; has something in heaven or earth which he will give up everything else for – something which absorbs him – which may be regarded by others as being useless – yet it is his dream, it is his lodestar, it is his master. That, whatever it is, seized upon me, made me its servant, slave – induced me to set aside the other ambitions – a trail of glory in the heavens, which I followed, followed with a full heart. …When once I am convinced, I never let go…

Walt Whitman

It was commitment. Total commitment. I could travel light years toward my goal but if I stopped an inch short of it, all the miles would be useless.

Marie Yan Lint, in Teach Only Love, by Gerald G Jampolsky

It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.

from Awaken the Giant Within, by Anthony Robbins

Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation) there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occured. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.

WH Murray, quoting Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

To say yes, you have to sweat and roll up your sleeves and plunge both hands into life up to the elbows.

Jean Anouilh

The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.

from Tuesdays with Morrie, by Mitch Albom

When you accept the challenge to implement your soul’s purpose, you will soon move from career to mission. You will need to become fearless and disciplined. Soul work cannot be undertaken halfheartedly; it demands total commitment. This commitment does not require you to become a workaholic. On the contrary, soul work is joyful and light. Advance soul workers do not labour hard to achieve results. They manifest what they want through the power of their minds and by understanding the principles of manifestation.

from A Guide to Liberating Your Soul, by Richard Barrett

When your commitment is to be loving regardless of the circumstances, there is no room for harsh words. You assert yourself not from a desire to control but from a desire to stand for who you are.

from Fearless Loving: 8 Simple Truths That Will Change the Way You Date, Mate and Relate, by Rhonda Britten

Enthusiasm is the best protection in any situation. Wholeheartedness is contagious. Give yourself, if you wish to get others.

David Seabury

Follow your bliss. Find where it is and don't be afraid to follow it.

Joseph Campbell

You need to make a commitment, and once you make it, then life will give you some answers.

Les Brown, American motivational speaker, author and trainer

I think I’d like to be remembered as someone who beat the odds through just plain determination. … that I persevered. Because I think that being somewhat of a pest to life, constantly plaguing and pursuing, will bring results.

Sylvester Stallone (1946-) American actor

Individual commitment to a group effort – that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.

Vince Lombardi

Most people never run far enough on their first wind to find out they’ve got a second. Give your dreams all you’ve got and you’ll be amazed at the energy that comes out of you.

William James

I want to work for a company that contributes to and is part of the community. I want something not just to invest in. I want something to believe in.

Anita Roddick, founder of The Body Shop
